Alaska Democratic Party On Top After Mary Peltola’s Victory

ANCHORAGE – Tonight, the Alaska Democratic Party (ADP) celebrates Democrat Mary Peltola’s historic victory in the Special General Election for the U.S. House of Representatives.

“From the onset of her campaign, Mary unabashedly articulated her positions on the issues most important to Alaskans. We can’t stress enough how deeply her message resonated with voters in light of tonight’s election outcome,” said ADP Executive Director Lindsay Kavanaugh. “Tonight represents a victory for democracy and Alaskans. We stand behind Congresswoman-Elect Peltola as she prepares to head to Washington DC and begin her work fighting for a better Alaska.”

“Mary has run a tremendous campaign and, in the process, won over the hearts and minds of Alaskans. She has refused to shy away from her democratic values and has been nothing less than her authentic self,” said ADP Party Chair Michael Wenstrup. “Alaskans have made clear they want a rational, steadfast, honest, and caring voice speaking for them in Washington DC, not opportunists and extremists associated with the Alaska Republican Party.”

ADP made significant investments in voter education and get-out-the-vote initiatives ahead of the Special Election and Primary Election in support of Peltola’s candidacy and to empower voters across the state under the new electoral system.

ADP would like to recognize Alaska Division of Election employees and election workers for their hard work, commitment and dedication to help ensure the integrity of Alaska’s elections.
